Fix CSS and other issues in IE

Problem

Making websites that appear correctly in IE is a big problem. Is there any java script library to fix all CSS and other issues associated with Internet Explorer (7, 8, 9) and make it work like Google Chrome, Firefox?

Solution

  1. use a doctype to make the page render in standards mode instead of quirksmode

  2. Check out what properties in CSS you can use and what browser supports them

  3. If you plan to use HTML5/CSS3 tech, then you should check the property and what browser is currently implementing these new tech

  4. You can reset the CSS using a CSS reset to start off from scratch in your styles

  5. If you need a stable ground to build on for your page, consider using a "base" style framework like Blueprint CSS's typography and forms CSS.

  6. Use a toolkit like jQuery, Mootools, Dojo etc. This will speed up your JS development. But NEVER let JS do styling and style fixes. That's the work of CSS.

  7. Ofcourse, never assume your design works at all. You must test on all available browsers, on the current version, 2 versions back, and on betas.
